this post has some great marker directions and a map and describes the area around it too! Hopefully you have internet or wi-fi access and you can see this, or at least print it out before you head out onto the water!

Snoop Dogg is riding on the Ski!

This is snoop dogg and her owner, John. They are riding the Kawasaki standup together. Now, if you knew how hard it was to even get up and keep up a stand up jet ski, then you would appreciate this move!

West Marine – Cornelius NC – Lake Norman Boating Supply   Leave a comment

 

30 am!

I took this picture at 5:30 am!

2 really good friends of mine work at this store and we frequent it a lot for boating supplies all year long! I wanted to pass this information to my friends and clients!

www.WestMarine.com

Yes, we have a West Marine location in Cornelius NC Lake Norman!!! Their slogan is “We make boating more fun”. There are over 340 locations in the USA. This is the “go-to” store when you have boat questions and lake questions as well. 

If you are looking to buy stuff to fix your boat, watersports, fishing gear, boat engine supplies, sailboat, navigation, wetsuit apparel, or anything that you can use on a boat or PWC in the water, then you need to visit West Marine!

 

The staff is extremely friendly and they can order almost anything you need since they have tons of catalogs for supplies from fixing your boat to tubes or accessories. We have bought everything from numbers for the skis to the chemical that you dump into the onboard toilet.  

Recommendations:  My friend Justin is the Assitant Manager at West Marine and he recommended that we join a program called “West Advantage”. This program saves you a ton of money if you purchase lake and boat items frequently throughout the summer. It’s already paid for itself! We also signed up for the Boat U.S. Towing services and trailer towing (in case of emergencies). I have seen a lot of folks break down on the lake and it comes in handy to be able to call someone on your cell phone to come tow you in!

 

I send a lot of my clients to this store because of the extremely helpful and friendly staff, they KNOW boats and Lake Norman, and also because they have Lake Norman maps, Lake Norman Boating Rules pamphlets, and tons of things to make your boating outings safe and more fun!


Want to tie up with us this summer? Call me or email me! We love the lake and usually go out every Sunday!

Lake Norman and Charlotte Tennis Clubs- Lake Norman Real Estate   Leave a comment

I could bore you with all the listings of the Tennis clubs in the area (that will be another post). But I would rather tell you about some tennis clubs where you can play round robin style at different faciliites in Lake Norman and Charlotte.

If you need directions to Public and Private Lake Norman Tennis courts, please email me and I will send it to you! Enjoy

Do you like Tennis?? Want to meet new people? New to the area?

Play tennis!!!!!! I didn’t know how to play and had never played about 1 and 1/2 years ago and now I am hooked!!!

I recently joined a tennis group called T2Tennis. There are several groups around the country. I joined the Charlotte group and have played 4 matches with my tennis partner, Debbie Thrap. We have had an amazing time!!! We have been able to meet other ladies and have a lot of fun at the same time!

What is T2Tennis?

T2Tennis is America’s premier flexible tennis league for women, men, and juniors. It’s designed to meet the needs of todays player’s busy lifestyle.

T2Tennis combines structured organized league play and flexible scheduling to provide a convenient, fun tennis experience.

Go to http://www.t2tennis.com/ to sign up and learn more information about it.

You can also meet people at MatchMaker Tennis!!! Go to http://www.matchmakertennis.com/

MatchMaker Tennis provides many different tennis formats to meet the various needs of our members. We offer men’s & women’s team tennis, men’s and women’s doubles, men’s and women’s singles and mixed doubles leagues. If you have never played “organized” tennis, our formats are designed to get you into the swing quickly and easily

If you live near the Lake Norman area, you may want to try the Lake Norman Compass Draw or tennis ladder. This will give you a couple weeks to schedule each match at your convenience (singles) and then you can meet different people in a round robin style fashion. With the compass draw, you get to play quite a bit and you get seeded out in compass style fashion whether you win or lose. http://www.lakenormantennis.org/

Fun Things to do on Lake Norman – Wake Surfing! Is it a sport?   Leave a comment

This is my attempt at being funny, but serious at the same time. I love lake norman and I love the water. Enjoy watching my friends in the videos. “KellySurf” actually broke her finger, had a cast on it, and still surfed “one-armed” almost all summer. WOW!

Wake Surfing.

Fun things to do at Lake Norman (or any lake for that matter).

What? Yes, I said “Wake Surfing”. It’s fun, but it is so uncalifornian. It’s not surfing on the waves at the coast, that’s for sure.

Well, easily put, ” Wake Surfing” is Surfing behind a boat – using the wake that the boat makes to ride the wave.

It’s also catching across the nation like wildfire and becoming really popular in the Lake areas. It’s starting to get really popular in on Lake Norman. I am fortunate enough to have met some new friends that have introduced me to it and it is a blast!!

I had a chance to try it a few times this past summer and started to get the hang of it! And now as I am sitting here listening to the weather forecast call for 38 degree temps tonight, I long for the warm summer days that we spent in the “bath-like” Lake Norman waters, surfing!

I have already been prodded by my “year-round “, lake loving friends about getting a wetsuit because I will surely miss out on those “slightly warmer” winter days going out on their ski boat.

I can’t tell you how much fun it is, so I will show you a video of my friends actually wake surfing behind a big boat with a huge wake. (I don’t recommend you try this if you are not a skilled skier/wake-boarder). These folks have been doing it for a very long time. Notice they throw the ropes back.

They tried a “duo wake surf” for the first time and this is what happened:

Oh, and in case you were wondering, yes, I have pictures of me wake surfing! LOL! The 3rd one is Mac and he is doing it without the rope (which is what you are supposed to do). I eventually got to that point at the end of the summer.

slippery wet suit

And yes, I gave in to peer pressure! Got the wetsuit too——–

If you are interested in getting a wake surfing board and tips, I would try talking to the folks at Icy Waves Surf Shop in Cornelius, NC.

Yes this is me on a Jet Ski on Lake Norman   Leave a comment

I have to admit, I am sometimes a little whacky. I was probably going over 40 miles per hour on this thing and jumping waves behind a really big boat. I almost broke the jetski coming down so hard. Anyhow, this picture is pretty funny. I wish I had a clearer one. This is me on Lake Norman, somewhere near Mooresville.



Yes, it’s me. Too much fun. Almost killed myself!!! Don’t try this at home. Come to Lake Norman!!! 🙂
